tilt the phillies season in a positive direction. just un 400 plate appearances, alear nine homers, 44 rbi's playing excellent defense. so if he can break out the phillies fans are in for a threat. and, finally, we continue to look for the future, the phillies aren't expected to contends just yet, but when they do, crawford and jorge alfaro will be there, but are knocking on the door. crawford multi tool player who is the shortstop of the future. while alfaro has monster arm, powerful bat. likely see both at some point later this year, once we do, hopefully see them carry the phillies for the next five to ten years. manager pete mccann on recently talked about playing 500 baseball. i think that would represent nice move in the right direction toward getting back to their winning ways. can you believe, now been nine years since the world series? we would like to see the phillies inch closer to new run of division titles and more, and that guy, guys,
